Octokontaheptaphobia

Chris here!

I learned that big word in the title of this post the other day. Say it with me: octo-konta-hepta-phobia.

You're probably like "what on earth is octokontaheptaphobia? Is it the fear of octopuses? The fear of October? The fear of long words?".

Well, I promise this is a real thing...seriously! It doesn't have it's own Wikipedia page but it's a real thing. I'm certain nobody in Blogville has this...in fact, they have anything but this phobia! Click here to learn what octokontaheptaphobia is!

P.S. I'm still getting used to having Fridays without tours! Next week I'll be starting a new series of fun posts to help with my campaign...I was going to work it out this week, but I'm still trying to prepare everything and work out the details. Stay tuned!

    .. well Christmas, not to brag, but I did know about oktokontaheptaphobia... 'cos I's an Aussie and I loves cricket... when the batsman gets to 87 it tends to get a bit tense because it is the most common number of runs to be bowled out or caught!!! Here in Blogville, it is the number which requires the most patience!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. We learned a new and big word! We wonder if Frankie and Ernie know about that. The number 87 plays a very big role in their lives :)

  9. WHAT?! The Devil's Number......bwahaahaa! It was the largest number that Frankie and Ernie's mum could think of as a child, so she always used it to indicate lots of things.
